About Your Therapist,
Yuriko Onuma, LMT
My Massage Practice
I am hoping that my massage practice will be the place where you find yourself deeply relaxed – take a moment to be yourself and listen to what your body is telling you.
My goal is to create an environment of safety and compassion that allows your mind to let go of everyday tension and stress.
Based on my training in human anatomy/physiology and massage techniques, I make an assessment and treatment plan for each of you to target and then achieve your goals, bringing relief to your discomfort and overall wellness.
It is my intention to help you increase your self-awareness and understand your own body. What lies underneath of your physical pain and tension?
Let me assist you to be back in the balance – helping release blocks in circulation and to restore energy and balance, seeking to harmonize the body and mind, and be aware of our life in our nature.
